Welcome to F1Minute for the 13th September 2009.
It was a Brawn 1-2 today, as Barrichello led the team to a beautiful victory, brought about by one-stopping whilst pole-sitter Hamilton chose a two stop strategy. Barrichello and Button were joined on the podium by Räikkönen, who overtook Sutil at the start, but was hustled by the Force India for the majority of the race. Hamilton had been running third until the last lap, when he spun off and into the barrier. It was quite a heavy impact, but he was okay, if a little disappointed.
Webber was out on the first lap, having made contact with Kubica. The BMW was shown the black and orange flag and had to return to the pitlane, but he was out a few laps later anyway. The other retirees included Alguersuari and Liuzzi, whilst Buemi was classified although he did retire on the last lap.
Both championships appear to be in Brawn’s grasp now, the question is which driver can nail it in the last few races.
That’s all for today, please join me again tomorrow for another F1Minute.
